Why this book?
As a young boy, I always loved Quentin Blake. Although Quentin Blake’s style is very different from mine, I have always admired how much expression and humor he can convey in so few marks.
This book taught me that you can learn to count in a fun way, with a story that is not ostensibly about counting, but actually, that is what you end up doing. I love the element of surprise on each page. I have always loved books that challenged me through pictures, making me spot differences or hidden elements on the page.
